    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">quote:</font><table border="0" width="80%" bgcolor="#dcdcdc" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="1"><tr><td width="100%"><table border="0" width="100%" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="10" bgcolor="#DCDCDC"><tr><td width="100%" bgcolor="#eeeeee"><font size="1">“Once upon a time, Mr. Lan Da and Xiao Sun dueled at the peak of Mount Tai, Mr. Lan Da used a hundred pound Iron Hammer, while Xiao Sun simply used a silk belt, using soft to counter hard, and they fought for the whole night, some say they changed the night sky into day.” - Ponytailed Girl</font></td></tr></table></td></tr></table></BLOCKQUOTE>

    The epic battle between Mr. Blue (Mr. Lan Da) and Xiao WangSun took place in another Gu Long novel - "The Lovers' Arrows". Like the Ponytailed Girl said, it was the ultimate battle between Hard and Soft.

    They fought first using their hands. Mr. Blue's shouts were like thunder and his iron fists were simple yet extremely forceful, carrying with it a powerful wind. Meanwhile, Xiao WangSun used his superior hing gung to evade and attack, seeming to be walking on clouds. He was constantly switching between different strange palm styles that were never before seen in the martial world. His palm attacks seemed to be coming from everywhere.

    But they reached a draw, so the 2nd round was with weapons. Mr. Blue wielded a heavy, iron hammer capable of breaking the most high quality weapons with ease (think Thor, Norse God of Thunder <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">). Xiao WangSun chose to use a silk belt, as it will only bend and cannot be broken. It might seem like Xiao would be at a disadvantage, but it would be quite impressive if Mr. Blue could fend off Xiao's fast attacks holding an extremely heavy weapon. But he was able to...because he was so strong he used the hammer like a sword and executed sword techniques with it. Meanwhile, Xiao was able to form attacks with the belt that reflected all the 18 weapons of martial arts (spear, sword, etc). Again the duel resulted in a draw (although my personal bet would be on Xiao because he was highly intelligent and would probably find some way to win) although it lasted all night.

    BTW, Meh - Wasn't this the part where she supposedly mentioned the fight between CLH and the Water Matriarch? I swear I read that before.

    No. She didn't mention CLH here. Actually, I don't remember it being mentioned anywhere in the book, but I read this novel before the CLH novels, so that could be the reason why I don't remember.

    Thanks for expanding on that battle. I think it should be added as a footnote in the reading room version.

    CrazyT: I did say none of the battles are going to be that long. Actually, I remembered that it was a little longer than it really was. I guess it just depends on what you're comparing it to. Some stupid fight between two scrubs in a JY novel will likely last ten times longer than any fight in here. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">


    Anyway, finished watching one episode of HSDS03. The saying "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." comes to mind. Apparently, I have not learned my lesson from HSDS94. This looks almost just like it... except the themesongs suck. Last time I'm EVER going to watch a Taiwan JY adaptation. <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0">

    Switching to Feng Zai Jiang Hu(Wind through the Martial World?), which seems much nicer from watching half an episode. Now catching a glimpse of the 3rd young master's sword. I guess Yu Fei Hong plays MuRong QiuShui, right? She is really hot, so this can't be too bad. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    Whoa! 3 Serials?! Meh, you may not be eating to well (referring to the whole Turkey Sandwich thing from JY forum) but you must have some sort of money to order 3 serials (even if one of them do suck). Heh anyways, have fun with all your new "toys" (so to speak) and thanks for leaving us with an update <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">!

    That's too bad. It's one of the things that places CLH before LCF.

    I'm pretty sure I read it though, and a few other readers recall it too. I think she mentions CLH's battle either on top of or instead of Xiao WangSun's duel. Oh, well..there seems to be a bit of editing done with some of his novels so I guess it depends on what edition you have.

    ZYC: Yes. It's the Alec Su/Aliysa Chia version. Actually, now that I've seen a bit more, it's not too bad as a stand-alone adaptation. The acting is much better than the 94 version. It has much more of a wuxia feel than a Qiong Yao story.

    The first part of the story seems incredibly rushed. The first 10 chapters in the book was covered in 5 episodes. It seemed like reading the cliffs-notes version of the story, plus some weird additions.

    just mentioning this in passing while reading about the whip comment gu long made. i guess most of you already know this. the whip actually does travel faster than sound. the crack of the whip is actually a sonic boom.

    i am not quite sure. but i think it depends on the skill of the person (of course) and the type of whip. e.g. tapered whips are better. certain materials also make it easier to make a whip crack.

    Sorry, didn't notice that. She is by far the best looking Zhao Min I've ever seen. Her portrayal is also quite good. Exactly the type of Zhao Min I had in mind. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

    Chapter 33: Shocking Conversation

    The ponytailed girl said, “This was the first time you missed a chance at killing him. You want me to keep going?”

    Li Xun Huan could only chuckle, “You don’t have to.”

    The ponytailed girl said, “Everyone else says you’re a true man, but you actually seem quite girly.”

    In his life, Li Xun Huan has heard thousands of insults directed at him. Yet this is the first time someone has accused him of being ‘girly’. He really doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

    The ponytailed girl looked at him with her big, shiny eyes. “If you have nothing to say, why don’t you start coughing?”

    Li Xun Huan sighed, “Young lady’s eyes really are sharp, looks like you’re a distinguished person. I’m sorry I didn’t recognize you.”

    The ponytailed girl said, “Stop flattering me, I’m just a nobody.”

    Li Xun Huan really did start to cough.

    The ponytailed girl said in a sweet voice, “I know you never brag about yourself, but like to praise others. This is one of your best characteristic, but also one of your worst. A person can’t be too humble, you know.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Young lady…”

    The ponytailed girl cut in, “My surname isn’t ‘Young’, my given name isn’t ‘Lady’, so why do you keep calling me ‘young lady’?”

    Li Xun Huan smiled. He suddenly felt that this girl is quite interesting.

    The ponytailed girl added, “My surname is Sun, I’m called Sun Xiao Hong, not the ‘Hong’ in ‘ShangGuan JinHong’, but ‘Hong’ as in the color red.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “My name is Li…”

    The ponytailed girl cut in, “I’ve already known your name for a long time. Now I want to duel with you!”

    This shocked Li Xun Huan, who said, “What kind of duel?”

    Sun Xiao Hong giggled, “Of course not kung fu. Even if I practice for another hundred years, I still can’t beat you. I just want to have a drinking competition with you. When I hear that someone else is a better drinker than me, I get pissed.”

    Li Xun Huan smiled, “I know everyone who drinks share this problem, but never thought you’d be the same.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Except if I compete with you right now, I’m getting too big an advantage.”

    Li Xun Huan asked, “Why?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said seriously, “After that fight, your body is tired, so your alcohol tolerance becomes lower. A drinking duel is the same as a kung fu duel. You need the right time, right place, and the right attitude to perform well. Miss one of these factors and your skills diminish.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Just from what you’ve said, I can see you’re an expert drinker. To be able to duel with such an expert, I would get drunk with no regret.”

    Sun Xiao Hong’s big, bright eyes shined brightly, showing happiness, showing awe, yet her face is still quite serious. “Well… Since I gain the advantage in terms of time, you should therefore pick the place.”

    Li Xun Huan couldn’t help but laugh. “In that case, follow me.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “After you!”

    The hours right before dusk are the worst business hours for a shop.

    Hunchback Sun sat at the door, looking at the sun.

    At this time, Li Xun Huan came with Sun Xiao Hong. Hunchback Sun couldn’t believe how these two people can together.

    It really is strange how these two became friends.

    Li Xun Huan did not see Hunchback Sun’s expression, but he finds the whole situation quite funny.

    This little girl never stops talking. Once she opens her mouth, she’ll chatter constantly, making it hard to converse with her.

    Li Xun Huan finds two things most annoying in life.

    The first one is to find out that no one else at the dining table drinks wine.

    The second one is to find a woman who chatters constantly.

    He finds the second thing ten times as annoying as the first.

    The strange thing is, not only does he not have a headache right now, he actually feels quite refreshed.

    When the opponent of a wine-drinking competition is a beautiful woman, it really is quite refreshing.

    If a woman is smart, pretty, and can drink, even if she talks too much, a man can tolerate her… but otherwise, a woman should talk as little as possible.

    On the way, Li Xun Huan heard her say many things. The old man is called White-haired Sun, the grandfather of Sun Xiao Hong. Her parents are already dead, and she had always lived with her grandfather. They’re almost never apart.

    He couldn’t help but ask, “So why isn’t your grandfather with you now?”

    Sun Xiao Hong gave a simple answer, “He went out of town to send someone away.”

    Li Xun Huan wanted to keep ask, “Why did he have to send this person outside the town?”

    “Who is he sending?”

    “Why didn’t he take you along?”

    But Li Xun Huan never likes to talk too much. Besides, it’s not like he has a chance to with Sun Xiao Hong around.

    It’s almost as if she purposely doesn’t want Li Xun Huan to ask that second question, countering with questions of her own.

    “How did you learn your legendary dagger?”

    “I heard you have a friend named Ah Fei. His speed is comparable to yours. Do you know where he is?”

    “You disappeared for two years. No one knew you were hiding in Hunchback Sun’s shop. Why did you hide there?”

    “Now that people know where you are, where do you plan on going?”

    “Who’s the Plum Flower Bandit?”

    “He hasn’t appeared in two years. Did he get caught?”

    “If he is caught, did you catch him?”

    He did not answer any of these questions. Some because he doesn’t want to, others because he doesn’t know what to say.”

    He knows that Lin Xian Er is the Plum Flower Bandit.

    He knows that Ah Fei would not bring himself to kill Lin Xian Er.

    He knows that Ah Fei took Lin Xian Er away.

    But to where?

    Had Lin Xian Er since become a good person?

    Is Lin Xian Er in love with Ah Fei?

    When he thought about this, he can only sigh.

    He doesn’t know what to do in the future either.

    Sun Xiao Hong constantly kept her eyes on him, her gaze filled not just with admiration, but also with understanding.

    Li Xun Huan looked up and met her gaze.

    His heart suddenly pounded.

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Can we start the duel now?”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Fine.”

    Sun Xiao Hong rolled her eyes, “Good. Now lets talk about how we will compete.”

    Li Xun Huan asked, “There are many ways to compete in drinking wine?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Of course. You didn’t know that?”

    Li Xun Huan said, “I only know one method, and that is for everyone to drink as much as possible. Whoever throws up first loses.”

    Sun Xiao Hong chuckled, shook her head. “It looks like you still lack drinking knowledge.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Really?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “When it comes to wine, you can duel using the brute-force method, or the scholarly method.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “So what’s the brute-force method? What’s the scholarly method?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “The method you just described is the brute-force method. You’re just chugging it all down”

    “Chugging it?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Of course. What else would you call it when people just throw it all down the throat?”

    Li Xun Huan said, “What else are can we do? Should we pour it down our ears, then.”

    Sun Xiao Hong smiled, “If you really can drink with your ear, then I would admit defeat now. I certainly can’t do it.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “It’s too slow to drink with my ear, I’m not patient enough.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “I’m just a little girl, so how can I compete using the first method? However, there are many scholarly methods of competing too.”

    “Which methods?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “You can guess numbers, clap hands, but these are too common. How could people like us compete like this?”

    Li Xun Huan said, “In that case, what else is there?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “There’s only one method left.”

    Li Xun Huan couldn’t help but laugh. Sun Xiao Hong also laughed. “However, this one method is not only original, but also quite interesting. Even if there are thousands of other methods out there, we’d still pick this one.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “There’s already wine on the table, and I just want to drink it. So feel free to pick any method you want.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Listen closely now, this method is actually quite simple.”

    Li Xun Huan could only listen.

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “I’ll ask you a question. If you can answer it, then you win, and I have to drink a cup.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “What if I can’t answer it? Then do I lose?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Not really. Only when I answer my own question would you then lose.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Once I lose, I then get to ask you questions, right?”

    Sun Xiao Hong shook her head, “Nope. The winner can keep on asking forever, until he loses.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “If you keep asking private questions, then wouldn’t you keep on winning?”

    Sun Xiao Hong smiled, “Of course I can’t ask private questions. If I ask you who’s my mother, how many brothers I have, what’s my age… then you obviously can’t answer.”

    Li Xun Huan said, “Then would kind of questions are you going to ask?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Once we start, you’ll find out.”

    Li Xun Huan chuckled. “I’m getting ready to lose.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said with a smile, “Ready? Here’s the first question.”

    Her smile disappeared, her eyes staring at Li Xun Huan, and then asked, “Do you know who wrote that letter?”

    This really is a shocking question!

    Li Xun Huan’s eyes lightened up, he stuttered, “I don’t know… Do you?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said calmly, “If I didn’t know, then why would I ask you this question? That person is…”

    Sun Xiao Hong purposely paused a moment, then said calmly, “…is Lin Xian Er!”

    Her answer is even more shocking! Li Xun Huan has always been a calm person, but he couldn’t help but shake just then. “How do you know it’s her?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “It’s not your turn yet to ask questions. So drink your wine first before we move on.”

    Li Xun Huan quickly finished the whole cup.

    Sun Xiao Hong asked, “Do you know Ah Fei’s condition?”

    Li Xun Huan answered, “No.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Although he’s living with Lin Xian Er, he doesn’t actually know what Lin Xian Er does.”

    Li Xun Huan immediately asked, “Where is he now?”

    Sun Xiao Hong shook her head and sighed. “Why are you so impatient? Wait till you’ve won before asking.”

    Li Xun Huan can only drink another cup. This cup is actually bigger than most bowls, yet he still finished the cup faster than usual. Because he really wants to hear the third question.”

    Sun Xiao Hong asked, “Do you know why Lin Xian Er wrote that letter?”

    Li Xun Huan answered, “No.”

    Although he has guessed at her intentions, he’s still not certain.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Because she knows that if people want to hurt Lin Shi Yin, you’d appear. She wants to make you appear, then find people to kill you. You are her biggest enemy in this world. She’s terrified of you. As long as you’re alive, she can’t reappear.”

    Li Xun Huan sighed, drank the third cup.

    Sun Xiao Hong asked, “Do you know who’s the first person to want you dead?”

    Li Xun Huan answered, “I’ve killed way too many people in my life. So how could I know?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “But only two or three people in this world can kill you. The first one is ShangGuan JinHong!”

    Li Xun Huan didn’t find this answer surprising. He drank the fourth cup, then couldn’t restrain himself from asking, “Is he here now?”

    What the heck. Here's a little bonus... <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

    Chapter 34: Shocking News

    Sun Xiao Hong shook her head and smiled. “Look at you. Why do you keep making this mistake? Wait until it’s your turn.”

    She then added, “You should know about ShangGuan JinHong’s temper. Normal treasures certainly won’t get his attention. What do you think he’s after?”

    Li Xun Huan said, “I don’t know.”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “Because he heard that your father was once a close friend of the former top fighter in the martial world, Shen Lang*.”

    *Note: Shen Lang is the main character of another Gu Long novel, Wu Lin Wai Shi(Misson of Warriors). Those of you who have seen the adaptation of the same name should know about him.

    Li Xun Huan said, “Shen Lang is indeed a great friend of father’s, but he has long retired and has since lived on a remote island. So what does he have to do with all this?”

    Sun Xiao Hong smiled, “Looks like if I don’t let you ask a question, you’d go crazy. But first you must drink three cups.”

    It’s as if she purposely wants to get Li Xun Huan drunk. Only her questions are too shocking, her answers even more shocking. Even though Li Xun Huan knows her purpose, he still kept drinking.

    Only then did Sun Xiao Hong continue, “Because he heard that before Shen Lang retired, he gave your father two martial art manuals. After only learning from one of the manuals, your Little Li’s Flying Dagger is already peerless in the martial world. If someone learns both, one can only imagine the results. So even ShangGuan JinHong can’t help himself.”

    Li Xun Huan paused a moment before responding, “If this is really true, then how could I not know?”

    Sun Xiao Hong said, “I realize that this is just a rumor started by Lin Xian Er. Shen Lang is extremely intelligent, so why would he purposely leave the manuals for people to fight over?”

    She smiled. “Even if he did leave some manuals, he won’t do so at your house. Why would he want to bring such trouble to a friend?”

    Li Xun Huan sighed, “That’s right.”

    Sun Xiao Hong blinked her eyes, and then asked, “I really should let you ask me another question. So you’re definitely capable of answering my next question.”

    Her eyes gazed innocently at Li Xun Huan, “Is she still the only person in your heart? Are you still willing to die for her? Of course, I’m sure you know which ‘she’ I’m talking about.”

    Li Xun Huan paused a moment.

    He never thought Sun Xiao Hong would ask this question.

    No matter who asks this question, he would never answer. This is his most painful secret, and his most secretive pain.

    If someone asks this question, it would be like stabbing him with a knife.

    He really can’t figure out why Sun Xiao Hong would ask this question.

    Young girls tend to be very curious, could that be the reason?

    She obviously doesn’t want to hurt Li Xun Huan, or she wouldn’t have divulged all those secrets to him.

    But who is she?

    How can she know so much?

    Her grandfather is obviously a very powerful person, White-haired Sun must not be his real name. So who is he?”

    Who did he meet outside? Is that person ShangGuan JinHong?”

    Where are Ah Fei and Lin Xian Er hiding?

    These really are secrets that Li Xun Huan would do anything to find out!

    Thumbs up

    I haven't seen any Dagger Le tv adaptations, so this translation is quite a wonderful find for me. Thanks, Meh, for your hard work. I am just starting to read the first few chapters of this story, but I wanted to first leave a comment to let you know that you have another reader. Keep up the great work. <IMG SRC="smilies/clap.gif" border="0">

    Cool

    I have a question - wasn't Lin Xian Er's dad the first Plum Flower Bandit? I thought Li implied that to Ah Fei.

    Therefore, why wasn't he with his daughter unless he didn't know about her plan.

    My guess at this moment is that number 2 is hand in glove wih Xian Er and the real culprit behind the stealing scriptures from Shaolin.

    you don't need to answer my guess since it might be spoiler. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

    the story is getting more exciting. Good job, Meh. I might put more benefits for you in my will after all.

    I'm too lazy to find that quote. But LXH was simply trying to imply that the older PFB and the new one doesn't have to be the same person. He said something like they could be father/son or mentor/student.

    I don't think you're even suppose to know who the 2nd ranked fighter is at this point. Anyway, this will get cleared up.

    Cool

    thanks Meh.

    that means the first plum flower murderer might be alive and around somewhere...???

    I like Sun Xiao Hong. Her personality is intrigued and I can imagine her as a bubbly girl - quite different from other demure females that GL usually portrayed.
